Liz Ryan has written an interesting article about words to avoid in your resume. An excerpt:

“Kill this: Results-oriented professional

Replace with your own version of this: I love to solve thorny supply-chain problems

Kill this: Excellent team player

Replace with your own version of this: At Acme Dynamite, I partnered with Engineering to cut our product cost in half”

Her point is well-taken. Your resume should contain concrete, specific examples of your achievements, and not be full of random “resume-speak” that anyone could write. The more specific your accomplishments, the more enticing your resume will be to employers, and they will respond!
